Doon breaks “academic sound barrier”: Overall aggregate averages of 90% or above at ISC AND ICSE 2016

136 O MADHAV GOEL

396-T HARSHIT BANSAL 360-K Advait Ganpathy

Congratulations to all those boys and their parents as well as the Masters for making school history this year. The Headmaster Dr Peter McLaughlin said We have been working consistently towards this goal and I am extremely pleased that it has now been achieved.At ICSE 62% of the boys gained 90% plus with 22% gaining 95% or more. I am very pleased that the boy who tops the batch of 2016 is Madhav Goel from Oberoi House, who attained an aggregate average of 97.8%. He has since passed the JEE Mains recently and is sitting the JEE Advanced.  At ICSE the results were also outstanding. The average was above 90% for the second consecutive year in which our boys achieved this score.79% of them gained 90% or above, with 22.8% scoring 95% or more. Unlike many schools, we have an unusually demanding curriculum in Classes IX and X, as all our candidates compulsorily take Mathematics (with 80% of boys gaining 90% or above this year in Maths) and the three sciences (in which 60% of boys gained 90% or above in all three subjects). The “toppers” were Advait Ganapathy  from Kashmir House and Harshit Bansal from Tata House, who each scored an aggregate average of 97.0%. Adavit is currently on exchange at Groton School USA and Harshit at Deerfield Academy USA.’
